Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre will welcome Joffrey San Antonio

Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre will welcome Joffrey San Antonio on Saturday, Feb. 2 to audition local dancers for its highly-respected 2013 summer intensive program.

Summer intensives are an extraordinary opportunity for local dancers to study under the supervision of some of the most elite dance instructors in the country and explore dance in a fresh perspective. Each year Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre brings celebrated dance companies to Baton Rouge to audition not only local dancers but also regional dancers who travel to Baton Rouge in hope of attaining a coveted spot in a summer intensive program.

Auditions are from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., and all applicants must pay a $30 registration fee.

Participants must arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled audition time for registration. Auditions are open to the public and will be held at Dancers' Workshop, 10745 Linkwood Court.

Joffrey San Antonio's distinguished faculty and staff aim to educate and develop advanced level dancers with professional dance education. Former Joffrey Ballet Company principal dancers will instruct Joffrey Workshop San Antonio students in classic ballet technique, contemporary, pas de deux and character dance in addition to hosting dance career-related seminars, lectures and repertory rehearsals.
